Mark Hughes could be mistaken for a shrinking violet off the pitch due to his quiet nature, however he has warned his new squad that he'll 'nail' them if they they step out of line.

Hughes said, 'It's a case of when I am irritated, people understand I am not happy with things. I can get that across. You don't stay as a manager for 10 years unless you have the ability to nail people if you want to.'
